Get your script noticed. Launch your career.
Now Open. Diverse Voices strives to provide a contest that is purely focused on promoting and encouraging diverse voices and stories. The contest encourages stories that are told from perspectives – through the author and/or characters – that are often underrepresented in Hollywood today. The contest accepts Features, TV Pilots, Web Series, and Shorts – we’re looking for underrepresented perspectives in any format. Some examples of great stories that have had fresh perspectives in mediums of film include: Bridesmaids, Fruitvale Station, F to 7th, Master of None, Mad Max Fury Road, Broad City, Parvaneh, Empire, and so many more.
Currently Closed. WeScreenplay's television screenplay competition offers two guaranteed and up to six reads, access to judges' scores, and thousands of dollars in prizes to winners of both the half-hour and one-hour categories. The winners also receive distribution to over 30 top producers and agents and mentorship from top players in Hollywood, such as legendary writer Bill Taub (Magnum, P.I., Dallas).
Currently Closed. The WeScreenplay Shorts Screenwriting Competition's mission is to provide talented writers and filmmakers the financial means to turn their amazing short scripts into short films. The large budget of the contest will be used to cover the budget of the short film as determined by the creators of the film, not by the contest.
